TV Tonight: The Hills

It's that time of year again. Another set of eyerolls, meaningful stares, and semi-contrived situations. Another heap of friend breakups, nightclub-hopping, and drama. Another season of The Hills on MTV.

As always, the trailer for the show makes things look pretty darn exciting (even though so often nothing ever really happens); we're promised jail time, Whitney in NYC, and more struggles between Lauren and Audrina. This time around, I've been pretty fascinated with the media reaction to the show: Entertainment Weekly gave Lauren Conrad the cover for a story about how different her life is from what we see on TV; Time said the whole show is staggeringly beautiful; and some other critics have admitted utter bafflement about the show's popularity.

So, let's talk about The Hills. Will you be watching tonight? Are you hooked on the show, and, if so, why? If you avoid it, what turns you off about it? To watch the preview and add your thoughts in the comments, just

After watching past episodes I realized that it was scripted. Especially when the girls suddenly look great after waking up lol. I think it started out unscripted until Spencer and his sister came into the scene. After they came into the scene and the ratings went up they decided to script it. I know I am a newbie to this show, but with the busy schedule I deal with I have not had a chance to keep up with shows like these lol.

I never got into the show until Mtv did a special on the Hills last night. So now I am watching the past episodes at to understand the show. I'm not sure whom to feel sad for Heidi or LC, because they let a man come between their longtime friendship. To me that is a crime, because both broke the girlfriend code on that score. No guy is worth breaking a friendship code. Not even a womanizing, pretty boy, metro-sexual, domineering, f***wit, SOB like Pratt. I do know I hate Pratt for his womanizing ways. I think the only reason why he is still with Heidi is because if she dumps him, he will lose his fame like all the other Hills ex boyfriends. Plus now that women know what he is about they won't have anything to do with Pretty Boy Pratt, unless they are dumb like Heidi whom is blind by his player antics. Even his sister is sick of Pratt being an A-hole over this issue between Heidi & LC.

I have tried to get into this show as a guilty pleasure, but it's just kinda boring. Plus, does anyone else worry about Audrina? The expressions on her face are eerily...expressionless. I feel guilty gleaning entertainment from someone so vacant.

This is probably my only guilty pleasure show, it's so contrived and nothing happens but I keep coming back for more! It would be nice to see something substantial happen, though, like Lauren having a "real" job or being in a serious relationship (other than this new dude, Kyle Howard). It's that time of year again. Another set of eyerolls, meaningful stares, and semi-contrived situations. :rotfl: The first thing I think of when I picture this show is Lauren's overdramatic expressions about everything.

I like to watch the marathons and recaps but I don't set my tivo to it. I'm drawn in and follow the stories so I can't say I hate it. I may actually like the show (but I won't admit it!); but then I stop to think if these people care about humanity or the world we live in. They splurge and have all this money and spend it on themselves. Can they see beyond their materialistic lives? That makes me sad . . . and then I change the channel.

Well, I might watch. I don't exactly remember what was going on since last season, because I'm not an avid fan. I kind of just feel "meh" about the show. I might watch it, I might not! I can't plan my life around TV :P

I cannot wait! I was a little disappointed with last season, but this season looks like it will be better. I watch it because it's mindless entertainment full of drama. Also, I love the girls' style, especially Lauren's.

I dont watch shows that are so contrived, useless, devoid of talent, meaning, intellect, and humanity. Its the last season anyway so thankfully I wont have to see these Meat bags pictures on here anymore.

is it sad that i'm SO excited about the show coming back on tonight? i spend most of saturday watching the marathon that they had and all the 'looking back' specials so that i could be right up to speed. i think that the trailers that tehy are running are more interesting than the show will be but we'll see. it's like the trailer from last season where they make a note about whitney kissing brody - yet there was never anything about that in an episode - go figure.
